How does ParaSport® motivate Alex?

One of the biggest things skiing has helped me with is confidence. At school and or other places I always feel the first thing people see and are looking at is my disability and braces. When I’m on the hill and clicked into my bindings I feel like none of that matters anymore and I can just give it my all. And show people that it’s not what you cant do that matters, its what you can do”. – Alex Marta
